In this paper, we propose and evaluate a new fuzzy-based reliability system for Peer-to-Peer (P2P) Communications in JXTA-Overlay platform. We consider Jitter (JT) as a new parameter. In our system, we considered four input parameters: Data Download Speed (DDS), Number of Interactions (NI), Sustained Communication Time (SCT) and Jitter (JT) to decide the Peer Reliability (PR). We evaluate the proposed system by computer simulations. From the simulations results, we conclude that when DDS, NI and SCT are increased, the PR is increased. But when JTT is increased, the PR is decreased. The simulation results have shown that the proposed system has a good performance and can choose reliable peers to connect in JXTA-Overlay platform.
